Bills GM Buddy Nix appeared on ESPN radio over the weekend with NFL reporter John Clayton, who asked him several questions about the quarterback draft class. One of the most interesting answers from Nix was on the importance of the quarterback position now in a league where the passing percentages continue to climb.
“If you look at the teams that really need quarterbacks, they’re all drafting high,” said Nix. ”The teams that don’t need quarterbacks, they’re drafting down the line, meaning they’ve won games. I think it’s probably more important than it’s ever been. It comes down to teams that have good quarterback play every year win every year.”
Knowing the Bills have been seeking a long term answer at quarterback for some time now, Nix’s statement indicates how critical it is for Buffalo and the other clubs at the top of the draft board to land a signal caller that moves them into the upper echelon of teams.
